Betereinders is a movement that promotes reconciliation and restitution with the aim of reducing poverty in South Africa. Part of this process is a redefinition of identity and formation of new relationships. Our ‘Zebra Crossing’ online platform helps people from the townships and suburbs to get to know each other. Betereinders are value driven: we don't complain, we do good things and we work inclusively. Our work includes ‘white work’ and ‘real talk’, whereby the former is preparation for the latter. More important than joining us, is simply to be a Betereinder: don’t complain, do good, work together.
